6:47pm
expecting another day of 100- degree heat making it the 27th day this year the temperatures reaching the 100-degrees mark. you tell us that heat is coming this way? >> it is. it will lock itself in with us. the danger of this is when you go through days, 2, 3, 4, it will be hard to shake the hot stuff. mugginess. breezy outside right now with southwest winds. temperatures got up into the upper 80s. we stayed shy of 90 degrees but that's not going to be the case as we move on forward. right now things are very, very warm. skies have stayed clear for the most part. but a few clouds are starting to push on in from our western zone. not going to bring us much of a rain chance for today but i amtraking some possibility for a few of those isolated late day showers and storms each evening throughout the week. as of right now we are looking pretty good. the humidity is starting to pick up just a little bit. we will continue with that as we head into tomorrow morning. once the heat gets a grip middle range 90s for the start
6:48pm
of the week then when we get into those triple digits or close to those triple digits it will continue with us during the heat wave. air quality suffering. tomorrow will be a code orange day. heat alerts throughout the week as the heat wave gets closer and closer. futurescast forecast model. so far so good. very quiet. working with moisture out towards the west but notice it doesn't have too much of a chance to get across that mountain ridge. early on monday morning a great commute as you head back to work but as we get into the afternoon we will go for mostly sunny to partly to mostly cloudy late in the day but the rain chances should stay away for most of tomorrow. then monday night into tuesday morning that's when we have our better chance of seeing some storms begin to develop. so here is your forecast for the overnight. it will be mild and fairly calm weather as we have mainly clear skies but a little bit of moisture to work with. temperatures into the middle range 60s. tomorrow morning after sunrise we head solidly into the 70s. the air will be unhealthy
6:49pm
tomorrow especially for those who are in the sensitive groups. elderly, young, those with respiratory problems. limit your outdoor activity and we will continue to pump in that moisture with the southwest winds. then tomorrow afternoon you'll start to see the subtle changes. we will go from partly cloudy to mostly cloudy by late day. a few late afternoon and evening showers. they are not out of the realm of possibility but tomorrow's highs you'll definitely feel the difference. i'm calling for about 95 degrees for washington. we should see close to that out toward manassas and for culpeper. but 93 for hagerstown and 92 closer to the chesapeake bay. morning forecast. here is what you need as you step out the door tomorrow. dress for warm weather. it will feel hot and some of the stickiest weather we have had in the last week or so is starting to move on in. that seven-day forecast is going to take us through the middle range 90s. the best portion of the week is going to be on tuesday and wednesday. we will get a little bit of a rain opportunity but then by the time we hit thursday, friday, saturday into the weekend even that 99 could be
6:50pm
very close to 100. it will stick around. >> we were just talking. incredible game. too bad somebody had to lose. >> yes. it is one of those too bad somebody had to lose. in your heart you're maybe kind of rooting for japan a little bit but of course us being americans we wanted u.s.a. to win but ended up for a heartbreak in germany. the women's world cup finals had all the excitement and emotion you could ask for. the u.s. women gave us quite a few nail biters during their run in the world cup and today was no exception. the nationals in the rubber match against atlanta. could they win their first series after the all-star break? and northern ireland has reason to celebrate yet again. those stories coming up next.

6:55pm
>> graham mcdowell, rory mcilroy and now darren clark. third major title for northern ireland in the last 18 months. if the name darren clark isn't familiar to you it may be because he has never won a golf major and hasn't even been a contendser in the last 10 years. that changed this weekend. final round of the british open at royal st. george's. a big push early by phil mickelson but lefty with the long putt for eagle in the 7th drains it to tie for the lead at five under. today though another big day for the irish. darren clark for eagle at the 7. sinks it to regain the lead. then on 18 with four putts to win. clark just misses the par putt but he is smiling of course because he knows it is all over. clark taps in for bogey to win his first major championship. this evening as you know i'm following up with a little
